MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 22, 2011

My husband loves the sweet potato bread that I make every year around Christmas, so I decided to try these cookies. Yum!They are very moist and tasty and a great way to use sweet potatoes, especially if you grow them and have several on hand. I will definitely be making again.
